Track Name: Heart In Line
Shivers and shakes running down my spine
Words never were my strongest side
“I felt the earth move…”
And then I fell to the floor
“…friendship is good but I want something more”

Oh I’ve been holding back
Oh I’ve been holding back
Oh my love
It’s sick

but I just…

Kept my heart in line (all the time)
I kept my heart in line (all the time)
Kept my heart in line

I wanted to say something nice this time
I wanted to tell you
You’ve been on my mind
“I fell in love…”
And then I fell to the floor
“…friendship is nice but I need something more”

Oh I’ve been holding back
Oh I’ve been holding back
Oh my love
It’s sick

But I just…

Kept my heart in line (all the time)
I kept my heart in line (all the time)
Kept my heart in line

But I’ve been thinking ‘bout the same old thing
Oh I’ve been thinking ‘bout the same old thing
Oh I’ve been thinking ‘bout the same old thing
Will you love me? (all the time)

I kept my heart in line (all the time)
Track Name: A Place In My Heart
All this time that you’ve been locked away
You kept on shooting that shit in your veins
I know it’s gonna stay that way

You swept your tears under the rug
You kept your fear hidden by drugs
I know it’s gonna stay that way

But you’ll always have a place in my heart
You always have a place in my heart

All this time that you’ve been locked away
You left it to me to deal with your pain
I know it’s gonna stay that way

But you’ll always have a place in my heart
You always have a place in my heart

I know you’ll never see
The sorrow and pain you’ve been causing me

You break my heart, my baby
You always will
Break my heart, my baby
You always will

I want you to say you love me
Track Name: Birthday Boy
Tonight is another lonely birthday
Everyone’s here
That matters to me
But I’m blue
Because of you
You’re going away
Please stay

When you say you’ve found someone who loves you
More than I do
I don’t want to let you go

Tonight is another lonely birthday
Everyone’s here
That matters to me
“We’re through”
But I don’t want you to leave me this way
Please stay

When you say you’ve found someone who loves you
More than I do
Well, I just have to let you go

But you know
My heart is going with you
Wherever you go
Track Name: My Baby Picked Me Up
Oh my head
Is spinning
And I threw up in my bed
I can’t remember what I did or said
I can’t remember anything...

Except...

my baby picked me up
And carried me here
My baby picked me up
And carried me here

Oh my soul
I feel like I’m a hundred years old
Been crawling in the dirt
Digging for gold
Been sniffing glue and gasoline...

And then…

My baby picked me up
And carried me here
My baby picked me up
And carried me here

And my world revolves around her
My world revolves around her
I should I have changed my way of life
The day that I found her

Oh my heart’s been kicked and badly bruised
and torn apart
Run over on the street by speeding cars
I made a mess of everything...

But then my baby picked me up
And carried me here
Track Name: Puppy
You’re just a wound up toy to that boy
But I know you’re something more
What I’ve been looking for
Is in your eyes

You made me feel you loved me
And when you made me feel unsure
Hell, I just liked you more
And now I want to cry

So if you love me, don’t leave me
If you really love me, don’t leave me
Yes if you really love me, don’t leave me here

You’re not a toy to this boy
I know that you’re worth more
Than I could afford
So I want to cry

I shout from the rooftops, don’t leave me
I shout from the rooftops, don’t leave me
I shout from the rooftops, don’t leave me
Don’t leave me!
Track Name: Here You Go
I have your picture
In my room by the bed
And I hear your voice
In the back of my head

“all your love please!”

I’ve been down this road before
Don’t want to walk it anymore
Dragged my heart through the door
And left it on your floor

I carved your name
Into my arm
Such a sweet simple name
Can do so much harm

“all your love please!”

I’ve been down this road before
Don’t want to walk it anymore
Dragged my heart through the door
And left it on your floor

It’s over, if you tear it apart
It’s over, if you tear it apart
Here you go, you can take it
Here’s my sad and lonely heart

I have your picture
In my room by the bed
And I hear your voice
In the back of my head

“all your love please!”
Track Name: It's Over
Summer goes
And the leaves start to fall
I think of the good times
Will anyone remember me at all

The winter comes
And my room’s getting cold
“Go to bed”
I will sleep in my clothes!

And I know
That I’ll sleep here alone

You can go anywhere
I will always be here
Oh I’m tied and gagged inside
You can do what you want
I don’t know what I want
Go on leave me behind
But just keep me in mind

The raindrops fall
And I caught me a cold
Shake like the leaves
Oh god I’m getting old

And I’ll still have to sleep
Here alone

You can go anywhere
I will always be here
Oh I’m tied and gagged inside
You can do what you want
I don’t know what I want
Go on leave me behind
But don’t forget me in time

If you love me
Catch me when I fall
If you love me
Catch me when I fall

It’s over
It’s all over
Track Name: Turn Your Head Around
I’ve been around you
A long time
But you don’t see me
I tried to sing
But you don’t hear me

Turn your head around

I just want to make you feel
Like I feel

Turn your head around
Turn your head around love

Just don’t forget
That time goes by
Just don’t forget
Even good songs die

But until then…

Whenever you sing a song
I’ll sing along
I don’t care if the words are wrong
I’ll still sing along

I’ll sing from the top of my lungs baby
I’ll sing along (turn your head around)
I’ll still sing along (turn your head around)
Track Name: Kill The King
Baby
I will bring his army down
If you want me to
I will burn his house to the ground

And if you want a little more
I’ll give you what you’re asking for

Baby
I will bring the king to his knees
And hang him
With the rope you gave to me

And if you want to know for sure
I’ll hang his head on your door
Track Name: In The Light Of Day
In the light of day
I guess I lost my way
No sticks or stones
can lead me home again

that ship has sailed
I tried, I failed
oh hell, my heart
Just fell apart again

I used to belong, I used to have
Somewhere safe to go
I used to be loved, I used to have
Someone nice to hold

In the light of day
My train went off the rails
No sticks or stones
Can guide me home again

I used to belong, I used to have
Somewhere safe to go
I used to be loved, I used to have
Someone sweet to hold

These distant memories of a home
Turn my heart into stone
And I’ll stay on my own
Track Name: Sexy Beast
I know
You don’t like to be used
You’re not a toy
But let’s face it you’re such a pretty boy

And when you walk, you hardly touch the ground
And all the girls follow you around
And all the boys really want to break you down

Oooohhhh

Lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalallalalala

I know
That beauty leaves a bruise
I feel your pain
All pretty boys start crying when it rains

And boy, your voice has the sweetest sound
Like all the girls, I follow you around
and all the boys really want to break you down

Oooohhhhh

Lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalaalalalalalala

You know, you’ve got my heart in your hands
You know, I simply adore your black leather pants
You make me weak in the knees (Hell yeah I love it)
And I’m begging you please (please love me)

Oooohhhhh

Lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalaalalalala
Track Name: Insomnia
Another night has gone away
Faded to past
And turned into day

You don’t know how this feels
No, you don’t know how this feels

I’ve got nothing left
Except way too much time
I just can’t stop
Wasting my life

You don’t know how this feels
No, you don’t know how this feels
